Getting my nails done with acrylic a few weeks ago has reignited my passion for beautifully painted nails. They’re like candy. When my nails are painted, I enjoy doing things with my hands. For example, typing and hearing my nails tap on the keys. Life is just better when my nails are done.

I used to be able to grow my nails pretty long and strong. Now they break all the time because I do more things with my hands.

I’m really loving the color on my nails this week. It’s called “Below Deck and it’s by China Glaze. It can be purchased from Sally Beauty Supply, Beyond Polish, Sleek Nail, and Sleek Hair.

It’s a purplish gray that’s something new for me. I’m definitely going to purchase this one again.

Real Vs Steal | Chloe Drew Leather Crossbody Bag Look-a-Like

Real Vs. Steal | Chloe Drew Leather Crossbody Bag Look-a-Like | kyssmystyle.com

I’d like to give a huge shout out to gojane.com for looking out for those of us whose discretionary incomes aren’t high. I’ve been shopping on the website since 2009 and I can truly say that it’s one of my favorite stores and definitely where I shop the most. They give us regular folk a chance to have nice looking things without spending our rent money.

This blog post is about yet another dupe for a designer handbag. In this case it’s the Chloe Drew Leather Crossbody bag. It’s absolutely gorgeous! I’m always on the lookout for dupes and when I saw this Twist to Go Saddle Bag on gojane.com, I knew it looked familiar. I’d seen it in one of KTR Style’s  Instagram pictures. She’s one of my favorite bloggers. I love her style.

What strikes me about this bag is how cute and feminine it looks. It’s also a decent sized bag so you can fit everything you need in it. I didn’t buy this one because I bought a quilted bag that’s a look-a-like for the Michael Kors Carine leather shoulder bag. Only so many black purses you need.

Real Vs Steal | Michael Kors Carine Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag Look-a-Like

Real Vs Steal | Michael Kors Carine Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag Look-a-Like | kyssmystyle.com

I totally hyperventilated when I first saw this bag. If you can’t already tell by my Real Vs Steal blog posts, I love designer dupes. When I find one, it’s a euphoric experience. I’m not exaggerating.

I made apurchase from gojane.com recently, and I was mulling over whether or not I should by a quilted bag. There was a nice one on the site, but I thought it was too small for the price. I googled “quilted handbags” in hopes of finding a deal. I came across the Carine Quilted Shoulder Bag by Michael Kors. I fell in love. I was even going to write a “My Favorite Handbags at the Moment” post just to feature this bag. A day later, I found a look-a-like for $50. It’s also available in red and beige. Let me tell you ’bout my God! I still think it’s a bit pricey, but I got it on sale. Furthermore, I was willing to spend the money for the gold detailing. To me, a quilted bag is a classic closet staple; I couldn’t miss the opportunity to make this bag my own.

In my opinion, all quilted bags are Chanel inspired even though this bag is a dupe for a Michael Kors bag. The gold chain detailing around the body of the bag is what distinguishes the Kors from a Chanel. The Kors bag has more of an edge than the plain Chanel quilted bags.

I also purchased a dupe for the Valentino 1973 Rainbow Vavavoom purse. One day, maybe next year, I plan on purchasing my first designer bag and shoe. Until then, I’ll stick to my look-a-likes.
